2nd Blogger Fiesta Manila production note 4



I just landed in SM North EDSA, I'm now eating my breakfast here in Jollibee, I'm glad that they allow people to enter in the fast food even before the mall hours.

I'm taking advantage of the free wifi here in SM North EDSA, just to check my email, FB, Twitter and blog. I hope everyone read my email blast yesterday, it seems that few people read the email I sent, I hope they can make it here at the blogger fiesta.

see you later guys!
our friend Lisa Ding of Blogger.com has a message for all of us.

today is the big day for bloggers...see you at blogger fiesta manila




going to rest and relax for now and see you all later

2nd Blogger Fiesta Manila production note 2

I did this error calculation yesterday and now it left me a sore back, bones and muscles. I didn't calculated the weight of these goodies that I picked up yesterday, and its so heavy and even put it in super big bag so that I can carry it easily, but it was all a miscalculation problem. Its so heavy and I carried the package all the way around the city for one hour and then going back home.

I should have brought that bag stroller, and now I'm nursing myself with this lots of back, muscles and bones pain, and also headaches. Last night got a fever after arriving home, because I got tired and burned out. I'm glad that I'm still alive and I'm excited to give these goodies away to all participants of the blogger fiesta.

2nd Blogger Fiesta Manila production note 1

P8162019
Before I start my production note for the Blogger Fiesta, I like to comment that why is that this Chowking Chinese style fried chicken tastes like Jollibee's chicken joy, even the gravy are the same with Jollibee. I thought that their Chinese style fried chicken will go on to level with the yummy taste of Bon Chon and Chicken Charlie (but my wife's fried chicken-ala ChonCharlie tastes the best), but after tasting it, I can say that their chicken is a complete failure, I'm starting to hate their chicken now and will just eat in Jollibee if ever I want to eat a fried chicken. Their tv commercial is fake and all their actors on the tvc. Sorry, I'm so disappointed. Have you tried their chicken ?

After a long day of meeting and traveling the other day, my agenda is to meet the marketing officer of SM North EDSA and my team (Kath and Futomi of Anime Alliance PH) to have a meeting and lay down the final plans for the upcoming Blogger Fiesta this Aug 20. It was a long travel for me that I came from the South and going to the middle part of the North, I'm glad that there's MRT and buses available on that day, I ate at McDo and then Chowing after my meeting and long journey going back home.

But even that the Chowking meal is a complete fail, I'm still happy that the Blogger Fiesta event is going smooth and thanks to all bloggers who signed up and showed interest that they are willing to learn more about blogging and get tips from our guest speakers.

Sponsors and donors are coming at last, I now receive lots of emails, phone calls and FB messages from some people and companies that they are giving support for this event, and thanks to them for supporting us, because this is event is produced without any funds and budget, and thanks to all people around me for helping and also big thanks to SM Cyberzone and SM North EDSA for hosting a venue for us.

It will be an awesome event this Saturday. Our topics for the panel talks are so interesting, I know everyone are excited and preparing for another big bloggers gathering for this Saturday, I promise that you will enjoy and learning about blogging and social media here is FREE!

so kita kits sa Saturday.

Az video blog 2011 - interview: Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo for Junior Masterchef Pinoy edition


Junior Master Chef Pinoy Edition will start on August 27 in ABS CBN.

The reign of the Pinoy Junior Masterchef is coming in ABS CBN this Aug 27

P8100916
I remember that everyone talked about the Australian version of the Junior Masterchef that was aired in our local tv, it was a buzz that reached in the circle of social media individuals to make the show do a little viral, I’m not aware of that show and when I switch on the tv and jump into that local channel, I saw that these kids are super and master chefs already for me, because they cook like the real deal and their presentation of food are very professional. Its like the Masterchef show, but here for the kids version, the bashing and straight to the point comment of the masterchef judge is very mild and with lots of advice given to the kids if their food is not good or lack some tastes.

For the upcoming Junior Masterchef Pinoy Edition that will air in ABS CBN on August 27, 2011, the Philippine tv scene and trend will change and cooking will reign, just like the trend of badminton, running, football, Beyblade and the popularity of Azkals team, the show will bring cooking and inspiration to people who want to be chefs and kids will be expose at an early age to try the art of cooking and introduce people to appreciate food and be a master foodie.

Cars 2 in car-awesomeness IMAX 3D glory

cs131_217ahaTcs.sel16.164
I'm glad that Cars 2 made it for the 3D era of movies and full length animation in 3D digital. We're going to see our favorite cars characters and Radiator Spring is just a tip of the ice berg when we saw their world in Cars movie last 2006, but this time for 2011, their world is much bigger and ohh it could be a 3D universe for Cars. IMAX 3D will be a perfect cinema to view animated movies in CGI, I'm sure Cars 2 will never disappoint us, because Lightning McQueen and his partner Matter will meet another adventure that is more action packed than car racing.
